PRUNING CLASS9:00-3:00. Join us for a FUN, Hands-On day of rose pruning with ‘Jan, the Rose Lady’ in our demonstration garden. We start indoors, with a "comprehensive" demonstration of pruning techniques on all types of roses - climbers, bushes, shrubs and miniatures. We’ll show you how to sharpen your shears! Then, you will actually practice by pruning roses in our garden (not just watching....) with plenty of time for questions as you prune! Everyone will go home smiling, and with a great deal more confidence in their ability to wield the pruning shears and prepare their gardens for a beautiful spring bloom! For your convenience some supplies such as pruning shears, sharpening stones, organic fungicide, etc. will be on hand for purchase.
PROPAGATION DEMONSTRATION *3:00-4:00. Learn to make more roses using dormant cuttings. FREE to pruning workshop participants, - Propagation Demonstration only is $10.
